I recently downloaded Persional edition of Pega 7.4. I tried to create a new application by going to the Build Application option. After I create the application,I got a confirmation message that the application has been created successfully. When I am going to Switch application options I am not able to see the create application in the option. I am able to see DM SAMPLE option only. I assume that is a sample application given by Pega. I tried to search name of my application in the search in designer studio and I was able to get edit appliciation option but I am not able to switch to the application I just created. Also I am logging in via email@example.com user ID given by Pega in the installation guide. Kindly guide me with this issue.Am I doing something wrong and how can I locate the application that I have created?
The switch application option will show applications associated with your access group(s). Log in as the operator that was created when the new application was built. This operator should have the access group created for your new application or you can create a new operator if desired and add the access group.
New application created by you won't be available as a switch application option with the OOTB administrator credentials.
When the application was created, confirmation message is displayed alongwith the newly created default operators with the password. These operators are associated with the application which you've created and they have access group mapped by default.
You could try with the admin@ or admin. (From 7.2 onwards).
You could check for the exact operators name by logging with firstname.lastname@example.org/install
Record Explorer-> Organization-> Operators , search for the recently created operators (You could easily identify as there would be less custom operators only available)
Then try logging with that operators you will get the newly created application and all the applications created from this operator id.
Hope it answers your question, kindly notify if it does by marking this post as answered for larger Pega audience and tracking purposes.
Switch application will only available, if the related application Access group is added in the operator Record.
Moreover new application created won't be available as a switch application option with the OOTB administrator credentials( As you are not authorized to add newly created access group in the operator Record).
